Former Mercer pastor sentenced

Posted: Updated:

MERCER COUNTY, P.a. - A former Methodist pastor from Mercer has been sentenced to nine to 25 years in state prison for molesting a teenage boy ten years ago.

Lee Moore, 48, was the pastor of Mercer United Methodist Church when he caught the boy watching pornography. Prosecutors say the pastor told the boy he wouldn't get in trouble if he allowed Moore perform sexual acts on him.

Prosecutors also said the teen lived next to the church on East Butler street in Mercer. 

Moore was convicted of the molestation in June.
